    SeaWorld Orlando may be known for its killer whale shows and animal encounters, but the thrills don’t end there — this destination offers five distinct roller coasters for all ages. “Whether you are just starting to conquer coasters or are a top thrill seeker we have something for you,” said Brandon Bruce, Associate Manager of Public Relations at Seaworld Orlando.

    Shamu Express, a coaster tribute for the park’s legendary killer whale, is good for children and families, but the adrenaline rush intensifies from here.

    With a height of 200 feet and top speed of 73 mph, the “hypercoaster” Mako is “the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster in Orlando,” Bruce said.

    The rest of the park’s coasters provide unique seating arrangements and experiences to up the thrill ante.

    In a unique blend, Manta combines a head-first, face-down ride with close-up animal encounters, while Kraken is the only floorless coaster in Orlando and flies along at highway speed. Finally, the Journey to Atlantis watercoaster drenches guests it flies through the middle of that sunken city of legend.
